These days EVERYTHING and NOTHING has changed. The pandemic impacted us all differently. Lockdowns were heavenly for some and devastating for others. Many are exhausted from the past couple years having to navigate dramatic and unexpected changes to daily life, employment, finances, school, parenting , relationships, hobbies, etc. If the ways you normally managed life aren't available anymore, aren't working anymore, are sabatoging your relationships or are just plain unhealthy, then maybe it's time to take a look at how you cope?

Sometimes life can throw us for a loop; it can feel like chaos and challenging to manage. Like someone has taken control of how our story is written. Doing the best with what you have, but maybe that doesn't feel like enough. Carrying around the weight of nagging problems can be exhausting. It can impact relationships, work performance, school, and parenting or simply make it difficult to find enjoyment in simple things. I can help with many challenges such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, feeling stuck, facing relationship problems, infedelity, high-conflict divorce, separation or even processing a new family structure.

A lot of the time, our first instinct is to seek support when we may feel we are drowning in our current struggles. The first step is always the hardest, in where we fear we will not be understood. My belief is that because each one of us is unique, our struggles and thus our journey in healing will be too. I aim to be an anchor in these turbulent times and be a beacon of unfiltered, unconditional and non-judgemental space in exploring our internal processes. In collaboration, we can address motivational, acceptance, behavioural, cognitive, social, biological and cultural aspects that can work in tandem in maintaining our struggles.

I work with children and adults who are experiencing conflict or distress associated with loss, transition or change; who may find some feelings or experiences too overwhelming or difficult to communicate using words alone, or for those who may avoid feelings or confuse issues in their use of words. The therapy I provide may suit for those who suffer from problems that stem from body related issues, concern about body image, or issues with trust. Some of my clients have impairment or trauma that may hinder the capacity for them or others to acknowledge and understand personal areas of strength and weakness.

My Passion is to deliver a message of HOPE to people that I come across. I personally believe that Hope can light a candle in the darkest point of life. Hope is what we all need in order to have a more positive look at life in general and be empowered to make constructive changes and live with a positive attitude. With the increasing challenges in our world and the fact that we are not immune to life's surprises and shocks, our days are becoming more stressful which make us sometimes pay heavy price....

No concern or thought is too small or large to be explored in therapy. I understand that life can bring us suffering, pain, loss, and other experiences that we oftentimes struggle to manage. My goal is to provide a safe space to explore & process your thoughts, emotions, & life situations, no matter how big or small. I understand that each individual's story is unique, & I allow for discovery to occur in a fully confidential, non-judgemental space.

Life comes with its ups and downs, and at times it can be difficult to process and cope with our thoughts and emotions during these hardships. Together, we can work through these challenges and find strategies to help you address the root causes of these difficulties while finding ways to cope and move forward. I feel that while embarking on this journey it is important to build a positive and healthy relationship with oneself. Through increasing self-awareness and self-compassion, you can truly love yourself fully and improve your mood and mindset. "When things change inside you, things change around you."

Are you feeling disconnected from your partner? Feeling they do not understand you? Not enjoying your time together? You were likely close to your partner during the early years of your relationship, but as stressors of family, finances or work have come up, your connection has changed. You have tried to resolve matters, but feeling stuck. Just like when you take your car to a mechanic for repairs, couples therapy can be helpful in repairing your relationship. It can be difficult to ask for help, but when your relationship is not working, it can impact many aspects of your life.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
